Abstract:A programmer is usually focused on the code on his screen, leading to a kind of tunnel vision where large-scale interactions are missed. The proposed Code Awareness Assistant (CA2) will automatically provide programmers with an additional level of awareness as they program in C/C++. CA2 builds on… more
Abstract:Recent studies have shown that embedded systems are extremely vulnerable to security attacks.

We will develop and demonstrate signal processing techniques to be used in next-generation ground-based radars to detect and track objects of interest. We… more
Abstract:The proposed Phase I investigation will focus on the development of spacecraft systems required to obtain a sample from the nucleus of a comet, hermetically seal the sample within a capsule, and return the sealed sample to an orbiting spacecraft which can return the sample to Earth. A preliminary… more
Abstract:We propose to design, build and test a 1 kg, single actuator, sample acquisition drill. The drill uses a novel method of core or powder acquisition. The core acquisition bit can be used for either a rock core, icy-soil or loose regolith acquisition. The continued development of robust sample… more
Abstract:HYPRES, in collaboration with University of Massachusetts, proposes an energy-efficient hybrid-temperature-heterogeneous-technology (HTHT) digital data link for interfacing 4K superconductor electronics with room-temperature electronics. Comprising several stages of cryogenic SiGe amplifiers at… more
Abstract:Modern radio frequency (RF) communication systems require more efficient and flexible use of wider bandwidths at higher carrier frequencies, which can be achieved only by direct digital representation of the RF signal itself, for both receivers and transmitters. Previously, HYPRES built, delivered… more
Abstract:The objective of this project is to develop a novel superconductor-semiconductor hybrid pipelined analog-to-digital converter (ADC) that provides up to 30 dB dynamic range extension over the state-of-the-art. The pipelined ADC architecture includes both superconductor and semiconductor… more
Abstract:HYPRES proposes to develop an expert system to automate operation of its advanced digital-RF receivers (ADRs). In Phase I, we established the feasibility of automating ADRs by developing the necessary algorithms for two broad classes of superconductor chips that represent all seven ADRs delivered to… more

Abstract:Recent research has shown that Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) may be used to measure the very weak magnetic signals in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) at ultra-low magnetic fields in the milli-tesla range or below. However, the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is quite low,… more
Abstract:Detectors utilized in high energy and nuclear physics research have, historically, been instrumented with FET amplifiers operated in the cryogenic environment. These amplifiers require heated operation, suffer from large 1/f noise, are very sensitive to microphonic pickup, and dissipate high power.… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a topical formulation incorporating a polymeric platform that releases therapeutic levels of nitric oxide gas, and assess its efficacy in dispersing wound-relevant bacterial biofilms. The intellectual merit of the… more

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
